CHRISTMAS ADVENT CALENDERS

Time to start thinking about your advent calenders, so here are a few for inspiration....

Oh oh oh, how cute is this....
Grinch_Advent_Calendar
Made from a hanging shoe organiser
and the pages of "The Grinch" story book in each days pocket with the date
and the grinch moves pockets each day
AND a little prezzie each day!!!

What about using others books like:
The Nutcracker
A Charlie Brown Christmas

Just scan the page to your computer and resize to fit the pockets,
(numbers on side and the story page on the other)
Oh I wish Liam didn't have to grow up, this is super cute!

 and some other lovely designs.....

We were are going to try this one
Alittle like the putz houses.

I have posted this again as I have so much on my plate at the moment 
I have had to change my plans and decided to make this instead.
The jars three for a £1 (poundland) 
chipboard numbers from hobby craft
and tags homemade and red stickers numbers.


Why not theme the contents of your advent calender, say.....
one piece of a 24 piece lego kit a day and the instructions on Christmas Eve
one bead a day and the cord on Christmas Eve
or one piece of a jigsaw
You get the idea so go for it!!!


Here's some more ideas....
